We designed and built an electro-optical sensor to detect human bodies. The aim of this paper is to describe a device to make easier the localization of lost people in natural disasters or in dangerous environments. The detection is realized in base of the infrared radiation emitted by the human body. We employ point commercial pyloric quantum sensors, the electronic assembly integrates the captured infrared energy by using low noise chip. The optical device include a Cassegrain antenna, a diffraction grating which besides to choose in automatic way the correct wavelength emitted by the human body, it is useful as optical filter.
